Coronavirus bill: How it affects US families
Turn Off Light
On Wednesday President Trump signed into law a coronavirus relief package that includes provisions for free testing for COVID-19 and paid emergency leave.
The bill provides many workers with up to two weeks of paid leave if they are being treated or tested for the virus.
Americans whose family members are affected by the outbreak or whose kids are out of school, can receive up to two-thirds of their pay.
However there are caps for both provisions.
Now that the relief bill is out of the way, lawmakers can focus on a proposed trillion-dollar economic stimulus package that Republicans are pushing through the Senate.
